Time Is Relative, Especially When It Comes To Carbs

The other morning (Friday, I think), as I was lying in bed rhapsodizing about warm bread with butter, Omer asked me how long into the low-carb experiment I was. “Saturday will be half way, three weeks done” I sighed. “Wow,” he replied. “That went fast.” And then I killed him. Oh, wait, that was just […]

The Plight Of The Picky Eater On A Diet

I’ve always been a picky eater. When I was a kid I didn’t like most foods. It didn’t help that I was raised vegetarian, because that cut out several huge categories right at the beginning. I was scared of new foods and instead preferred to eat what I knew and loved. Why risk it? Any […]

#CarbBreak2015 Update: It’s Not That Hard (That’s What She Said)

I was in Buffalo over the weekend for Easter visiting my mom, so I couldn’t weigh myself on Saturday like I did the week before. There’s just no point in weighing myself on a different scale under different circumstances. So, this update has an extra three days in it, and next week’s update will have […]

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

What Does Cauliflower Crust Pizza Taste Like?

So I’m doing this six-week low-carb experiment, and I think I’m hating myself more than the experiment. OK, so, I’ve officially become that person who talks about being low-carb ALL the time. Is it mitigated at all by me hating it and not being all “You HAVE to go low carb! This is awesome sauce!!!!!” […]

One Week (And Almost Five Pounds) Down

Last week I announced that I was giving up carbs for six weeks. Some people who know me well were shocked. Some people who don’t know me well skimmed the post, totally missed why I was doing this, and gave me lots of dieting advice, so I also wrote this. Now that my first week […]

I Knew There Would Be Misunderstandings

I knew, no matter how carefully I explained why I was giving up carbs, that there would be misunderstandings. I knew that people would give me diet advice and tell me why giving up carbs was a bad idea. Even the awesome people who told me how great it worked for them and gave me […]

I’m Giving Up Bread, Pasta, And Potatoes

  No, it’s not April Fool’s Day, although I can imagine some of you think this is a joke headline. I am actually giving up bread, pasta, and potatoes for six weeks. Also gone are butternut squash, peas, corn, milk, yogurt, chickpeas, every bean except for green beans, and chocolate. Well, all desserts I guess […]

New FitBit App For Windows Phone

Sometimes you write a post knowing that it will have broad appeal. Other times… I’m guessing there are roughly three people in the middle of this Venn diagram. This post is for you. Honestly, I could have added another circle to that diagram to reduce the number of interested readers even more: people who have […]

Will A FitBit Change Your Life?

I bought a FitBit Flex about a month ago. I seemed to be the only person I knew who wasn’t walking around with some kind of tracker on, so now I’ve joined the club. I’m not doing the FastDiet right now and not training for any races until the end of the  month, so I […]

Thigh Gap For Chubby Women

If you pay attention to vapid twenty-somethings, you might have heard of the quest for “thigh gap,” which is basically the space between your thighs when you’re standing with your feet together. But that’s not what I’m talking about. If you’ve got some meat on your bones, you know what it feels like to leave […]
